Scattered throughout multiplayer and campaign levels on Halo 2 and Halo 3 are UNSC crates, or large boxes, that contain supplies for ground based Marine forces. The contents of crates can be identified by their labels, and range from portable generators to armored boots. Although their only actual use in the game is cover from enemy fire, they do reveal a bit about the UNSC military, and play a key role in the environment of maps and campaign levels. They can also serve as cover or platform.

Halo 2


There is a range of different types of crates. This section contains information on all of them, ranging from smallest to largest. Kits are small crates that appear to be carried by Marine ground forces. Barrels contain liquid supplies. Small crates carry equipment used by ground troops, and large crates contain large pieces of equipment for use at fixed positions.




A small medical kit.

The first crate can be found only once or twice in the game; it appears to be a small medical kit Marine medics would use to treat the wounded. It has the word "Rescue" along with the international medical symbol. It is likely able to be found in various campaign levels at Marine positions, but it can only be found once in multiplayer on the map Foundation.

Nerve Gas

Nerve Gas1

A small crate containing Nerve Gas.

This container can be found in a Brute encampment inside the armory. It is placed under another crate so it is pretty difficult to find. There's another one on Metropolis on top of the building where Sergeant Banks and a turret are next to a medical crate. The crate has been spotted on the multiplayer map Foundation as well. Perhaps it is with a bit of dry humor that Bungie placed this small crate right next to a medical kit within the same room. It might be inspired by the notorious VX nerve agent that was in modern times before it was banned.

Type: VX 7, possibly one of Bungie's 7 references.

A barrel of pure water.

This crate (or barrel) can be found all over on multiplayer maps and Marine encampments in campaign. It appears to be a barrel of water for hygiene, cleansing, drinking, etc.

Halo 3

Halo 3 features most of the same crates as seen in Halo 2. Interestingly, the crates in Halo 3 have exactly the same labels as in Halo 2, even though the pieces of equipment they represent have been changed. Of course it's possible that the crates contain older equipment.

Similar crates also appear in Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Reach, and Halo 4.
